just did a dvd called rediscovering god in america which includes a section on washington. and i'm very intrigued with the extraordinary job that mount vernon has done in blding a remarkable education center, which i encourage everyone who comes to washington to go see. i would be very tempted someday to write aovel aut washington personally. i think washington's life is so amazing. he is such a personal odyssey in the development of freedom and he's so little understood, but it would be very daunting because washington is maybe the most complex american. i'd be pretty intimidated right now to try to explain his mind and explain how he operated. >> host: we have about 5 minutes left in our first hour of three with author, writer newt gingrich and also former speaker of the house and historian. we're spending three hours talking about his 14 books over his ceer so far. the next telephone call is from jacksonville, florida. you're on the air. >> caller: hello and thank you r c-span and congratulations to brian lamb on his presidential medal of freedom. mr. gingrich, you spoke earlier abou

"where were you when freedom was on the ropes in the united states of america?" tonight, all of the president's czars, are they 32, 34? i do not even know how many of them are working on your dime for the president of the united states. the other question mç how much power do these czars have? another thing, i think they have more influence on the president than the vice president, but that might be a good thing. leaders on capitol hill i think will find themselves out of powers to agree not the people is doing. i think the administration's doing -- not the people's doing we are going to cover one of the most comp
sean: tonight, bill clinton, and two hostages released from north korea. but what did america gives up? >> the most effective means of protecting american safety. sean: eric holder. $9 million in the lawyer's fees. that is a whole lot in ethics violations. >> i formally announce my candidacy for the united states presidency. sean: an investigation into the latest golden boy of the political machine. frank luntz, and much much more. "hannity" starts right now. and this is a fox news alert. the two journalists detained in north korea have been released. laura ling and euna lee were released by north korean dictator kim jong il. the pardon was announced just hours after former president bill clinton arrived in p'yongyang. the journalists are both employees of the cable television station current, which is owned by former vice president al gore, and they were charged with illegally entering north korea and sentenced to 12 years of hard labor for their crime, but now, the ordeal is over, and the journalists are on routed back to the u.s. aboard president clinton's airplane. -- they are e
mean, not really. hello, america. at the end of the sixth month, we've all read this, president obama looked at all he created and said "it is very good," and so he declared the 7th month a month of rest. yes, our messiah is going on vacation. here is the one thing. barack obama needs a say case. he must be tired. he spent the last six months transforming our country and most people won't either admit it or recognize t he told us he would do it and he is, but no one is paying any attention to it. if you give me the next few minutes, and please, please, open up your ear. put your politics aside. open up your ears and your eyes and watch with a fresh perspective. don't be in denial. do not put your head in the sand. if i'm wrong, you're more than welcome to show me where i'm missing t i would love to be wrong on this. barack obama has revealed his game plan to transform america in his deeds. the transformation was marketed to america as change, and boy, was america just eager for change. >> i want change whatever happens. i won't have to worry about putting gas in my car. i won't have t
, follow me! >> hello, america. today is a very, very special day. it's president obama's birthday. he turns 48 today, which, by the way, is only 16 more years than we had czars. 16 more czars to go before his age equals total number of czars. here is the one thing tonight -- it has been an amazing life for our 44th president, and i, like the rest of america, am inspired by his story, so, i'd like to share it with you tonight. story of barack obama. it starts -- well, it starts with his parents, ann donovan, barack obama, sr. oh, sure. sure, it begins like any other classic american love story, when these two love birds met while taking a russian language class. how many of our parents met there taking russian in 1960 at the height of the cold war? i can't count the numbers that met that way. by 1961, they were married are, and later that very same year, barack obama, jr., was born. president obama so movingly called this story during a speech commemorating the anniversary of the civil rights march in selma. >> i am disturbed what happened across the country because of folks in selma,
couldn't even vote for a senator if you were an ordinary citizen. so, the struggle foremocracy in america is ongoing. i think theresa is onto something very important. i'm not sure ralph nader is necessarily the best witness for the prosecution, precisely because he did such a brilliant and important job of holding regulatory agencies to account. when he was the g who was a national figure, fighting for those issues. and now that he is -- made himself a presidential candidate he has become unfortunately very in effect tulle in the most important work he has done. t, the -- absolutely, absolutely we need more democracy in america and won't get it until there is serious popular will for that. >> if youook closely at the 1968 election, george wallace got 13.5% of the vote, it was i a good thing for democracy. >> this is an excellent question and when i look ba, third parties in america, most frequently in our century, have been basically formed by southerners, hoping to hold the balance of power in the electoral college co they could basically broker who the president wouldet to be and were

[laughter] nothing, thank god. [applause] ann coulter is now the author of seven "new york times was " a best-selling books, and i am sure there will be many more to come. she graduated with honors from cornell university, and no, mr. alderman, not the same school you attended. [applause] she then went on to practice law in new york city and even work for the senate judiciary committee. the conservative movement is so lucky that have an intelligent, articulate, and not to mention ex
a great story it is for america, and what a great story it is that president obama would give us a chance to consider judge sotomayor to serve as the first hispanic woman on the united states supreme court. for many who oppose judge sotomayor, her life achievements and her judicial record are just not good enough. after poring over 3,000 court decisions and hundreds of her speeches, judge sotomayor's critics focused their opposition primarily, not exclusively, but primarily on one case, the ricci case, and on one sentence from one speech. i hope someone was keeping track of how many times those three words wise latina woman were quoted during the course of this hearing. senator after senator asked her what did you really, really, really mean with those three words over and over again. we are senators who live in a world of decisions and votes every day, and we understand when our decisions and votes are questioned and challenged often in an unfair fashion. if we vote in a way that's controversial, we ask that people be fair and judge us on our life's work, not on a single vote. it's a sta

[applause] if they're going to be supporting barack obama and the democrats, we do not need them. but when i talk to other republican people, they say that if we get rid of one, we will get another one so that i am in a dilemma about that. we have a man that is running for governor who, one week
for health care in america. town halls are causing public uproar confusion. al li is curing the country on cnn express. joining us from the missouri state fair. talk about getting the pulse of america, what are you hearing? >> reporter: we have been driving from atlanta to des moines and passed through georgia, tennessee, kentucky, illinois, missouri, heading into kansas and iowa. we're talking to people in places smaller than what would get media coverage about health care. as the health care debate was heating up on tv, we were trying to get a quieter discussion going. there was plenty of disagreement where we went. we ended up in an interesting place, northwestern kentucky on the illinois border. we had a bit of a town hall meeting. one was a democratic candidate who ran in the last election and lost. she had very, very strong views on health care. here is a bit of a taste of what she told us. >> well, my husband and i are two of the 47 million plus that don't have health care. i'm not talking insurance. i want health care. my husband had diabetes and a bout with cancer. what insuran
pretty much 100% control of all information dissemination in america. now you have these tiny little breaches in the wall of sound with talk radio and the internet so what they want to do? shut them down. >> host: early one morning just been published you were being interviewed by howard smith on pbs and he said you talk about victims and dictum put in america but the more i listen to you i think that you are the one claiming victimhood, that you are the victim of the left-wing conspiracy and he held out his arms and said you should have across. what is howard smith struggling with? [laughter] .. how is chris werner going to get out there and heather macdonald? we have so many fantastic writers in new york, some and fantastic right wing writers and you are buying your head against the wall just to get attention for a book in even a best-selling book, even your seventh best-selling book when it's that hard for me to get on tv what does that say about the conservatives people love norma? >> host: others have said you try to be funny and he called a sophomoric sort of simplistic view of
. uncompensated care in america cost $43 billion. you and i pay that tax. now, -- i want to address the 47 million who do not have health care coverage, to bring them into the system and that can help lower cost by having a bigger risk pools. the second thing i want to do is having meaningful cost of health care reform. let's start with medicare. i want to close the doughnut hole on prescription drugs. i want to make sure all of our seniors have access to the medications they need and that no one in america over 55 or 65 casta make this terrible decision, to lead by a meal or the prescription drugs that i need? yew instead both the there are some specialized prescription drugs that cost a lot of money. i want to make sure a catastrophic illness does not bankrupt families in america. in our district alone, the 11th congressional district, last year, 1430 families filed for bankruptcy because of health care costs. any family in america, young or old, could be one accident or one illness away from catastrophic health care costs. capping health-care -- catastrophic costs so that the family is forced i
of dollars paid for in part by the pharmaceutical industry represent the kind of change america can believe in." david axlerod's son works there. steve: exactly. here's the thing about it. the $24 million to buy the ads, that is being bankrolled by the pharmaceutical industry. $24 million from the pharmaceutical industry, pumping into our tv and radio bloodstream and what not, and stuff like that. now, wait just a minute. didn't the pharmaceutical industry strike a backdoor deal with the obama administration regarding health care? oh, yeah. that's why a lot of people are going, hmm. however, the white house deny that axlerod is making any money on it. brian: did you see what bernie goldberg said last night? i thought it was a great point. remember everyone said -- critics. bush administration said, what is dick cheney doing? did he start that work so he could get his halliburton company, they used to be an executive, get all of those contracts to help rebuild iraq? people kept saying halliburton, look at dick cheney. maybe people thought halliburton was the best and only company that would
africa and the operations of hezbollah. we had experts here in the audience dealing with latin america. the question is, what are the iranians doing? what is hezbollah doing in that area? and in connection with the iranian involvement, and we do have our record of almost 30 years, it seems to me that we have to ponder the future with great concern particularly when we see the continuity of the ahmadinejad regime in iran today. so again, the bottom line of the question of threats and response depends on the perception of the threat and the coming of around at that i think we have to develop in order to reduce the risk of terrorism. so unfortunately from the academic point of view and a practical point of view, we would have to deal with this issue in the coming months as well as the coming years. i like to thank this opportunity -- take this opportunity to thank our panelist for this discussion. at this point, i would also like to recognize the interns who have worked with us this summer, who are finishing the work tomorrow. would you all please rise? where are the interns? this is the

by physicians. it is the heart of the american practice of medicine. the most famous hospitals in america. either started out or still are physician-owned. like the mayo clinic, john hopkins in baltimore. in my state, md anderson. not every state allows physicians to have an interest, an equity/ownership interest in hospitals. in those states that do they have the highest quality rating, patient satisfaction ratings. i am blessed in my congressional district to have a number of physician-owned hospitals. i have been treated in the hospitals. i have gone to the emergency rooms in the hospitals. my mother has been in one of these. without exception. the experience has been as good as it can be given the situation that resulted in it. the pending bill for some reason is punitive. on these types of facilities. would at a minimum prevent their expansion. in all probability cause a number of them to close. if you read the language that my amendment strikes it is punitive and nature and very restrictive. some limited exceptions where you can appeal to the secretary of hhs. if we're going to have

. i don't quite get that but they do. america is a conservative company with a small c in this way. they all say they want change but they don't want quite as much as they think they want when they get in the ballot box. and so you can't change the system and push everybody in a certain way they don't want to go. so in 2004 i said, you know, let's keep the employer-based system is because i think you need to give the american people the choice and if that's what they want, let them choose that. that's why obama's bill -- i'm such a fan of obama's bill. that's howard dean's version of healthcare, 2004. insure everybody under 30. let everybody else buy into medicare or keep their private insurance if you want. now here's what i like obama's bill. it gets back to choice. we have failed to insure people in this country not just because the insurance companies spend a lot of money with harry and lewis who have endorsed health insurance now. we failed because we tried to make the american people do something they didn't want to do. 80% of the people in this country have insurance. of tho
